MetadataShow full item record
The USER'S GUIDE TO ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION is intended to be a demonstration of a prototype information system that might be developed at the regional scale. As a demonstration, therefore, this USER'S GUIDE is not a comprehensive document, but serves to merely display a representative sample of the information needs and information sources found within the seven-county region of the Brazos Valley Development Council (BVDC). This document is the result of a detailed process of inventorying and characterizing existing and potential information users, their needs and problems, and their relationships to existing information sources. Thus, Phase I of the EMIS Project involved a process of interviewing and analyzing information users and sources, investigating the relationship of demand to supply, and constructing a prototype Environmental Management Information System for regional use in the form of the USER'S GUIDE TO ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION.
